"An excellent book which has already stimulated me to rethink some aspects of a field in which I have worked for many years. I can recommend it to both experts and students." -- Robert Jervis, Columbia University
"A major theoretical contribution on one of the core concepts in internationalpolitics. It is filled with smart insights and treats other approaches in a fair and
sophisticated way. No future scholar will be able to write about the security
dilemma without engaging this cutting-edge work." -- John J. Mearsheimer, University of Chicago
"Learned and incisive, yet also impressively clear and balanced, this long-
anticipated book has been well worth the wait. Booth and Wheeler put the
concept of the security dilemma at the centre of how we should think about
international relations knitting the whole subject together so well around their
core theme that this could easily be used as a main teaching textbook in IR.
It is hard to think of a better written or more stimulating (re)introduction to the
subject than this."-- Barry Buzan, London School of Economics.
"A landmark work of great intellectual depth and normative contemplation. This
book speaks to theorists, policymakers, and global citizens as they grapple with
the most daunting issues of our time." -- Geoffrey Wiseman, University of
Southern California and formerly of UN Secretary-General's Office
